a good indication of what gadhafi's capable of. that's all for us tonight. >>> now, here's anderson cooper with "ac 360." >> thanks, piers. breaking news, smoke earlier today pouring from reactor two and three at the crippled plant, the fukushima daiichi plant. workers evacuated the unit. radiation levels prompting the u.s. military to consider mandatory evacuation of thousands of american troops and their families in japan. radioactive dust being detected at very low levels, we want to point out in seattle, washington. despite substantial progress over the weekend this is far from over. we're going to have the latest details at this hour, also the latest on the dead and missing now numbering 21,000. and the body of a young american teacher has been found. we talked about her on this show last week, her parents had been searching for her. she's the first known american fatality. we begin though with the attack on gadhafi forces in libya, now entering day four. allied forces launching as many as 80 missions today, that is up from yesterday. americans flying fewer than half of them, t
, gadhafi is claiming they haven't fired on any civilians. a local doctor tells us the hospitals have been shut down. he says the army shot and killed two colleagues in the main square. even more chilling, when troops encounter wounded residents, they don't take them for treatment. instead, accord to this doctor, the wounded are shot dead. we cannot independently confirm that, but that team from sky news was in an ambulance that was fired upon by government forces. all of these accounts contradicting the government line that there's no uprising and major libyan cities are being held hostage by al qaeda fighters. it also lays bare the claim repeated by one of moammar gadhafi's sons today. >> translator: the leader gave clear instructions that the military doesn't intervene, except in cases where there are vital areas that need to be protected and to be ready in case of foreign intervention. >> none of what you see in zawia or any place else backs that up. yet the regime falsely claims about 100 fatalities, many police officers they say killed by al qaeda or crazed libyan teenagers hopped up
of the situation in libya tonight. and why the u.s. military intervened as gadhafi was closing in on benghazi a little more than a week ago. >> at this particular moment, we were faced with the prospect of violence on a horrific scale. we had a unique ability to stop that violence. an international mandate for action. a broad coalition prepared to join us. the support of arab countries, and a plea for help from the libyan people themselves. we also had the ability to stop gadhafi's forces in their tracks without putting american troops on the ground. to brush aside america's responsibility as a leader and more profoundly our responsibilities to our fellow human beings under such circumstances, would have been a betrayal of who we are. >> a lot more on what the president said in a moment. we'll also look tonight in an incredibly disturbing incident that looked at a tripoli hotel full of journalists. a woman tried to tell reporters of her alleged gang rape at the hands of gadhafi troops. this woman was dragged away by gadhafi officials, we have updates about what's happened since. we'll talk wi

'll also look niment we'll also look tonight in an incredibly disturbing incident th loo th loo that looked at a tripoli hotel full of journalists. this woman was dragged away by gadhafi officials, we have updates about what's happened since. i'll talk to nick robert son about it. the gadhafi regime has told multiple conflicting stories about that woman. they first denied that opposition even existed on gadhafi. then they blamed it on had a louis genics. >> we have trouble coming up with proof of any civilian casualties that we have been responsible for. but we do have a lot of intelligence reporting about gadhafi taking the bodies of people he's killed and putting them at the sites we've attacked. we've been extremely c
to it. two great roles for us. >> listen, thank you for all coming in. it's been most entertaining. matt, emily, anthony, john, it's a great film. here's anderson cooper with "ac 360." >>> good evening, everyone. tonight, president obama says it is time for moammar gadhafi to go. the u.s. military has now joined efforts to evacuate refugees from the border with tunisia. but gadhafi is hanging on, using the same weapons he has for the last four decades. terror and lies. for his own people, terror. new reports have kidnappings in tripoli, people suspected in taking part in demonstrations or talking to the media, taken from their homes, disappeared. as for the other weapon, lies. as always, we're keeping them honest. today, libyan authorities showed off what they say was a massive shipment of pills that they xer sented. they say al qaeda was trying to snuggle in 37 painkillers so they would join the fight against gadhafi. remember, this has been gadhafi's claim from the beginning. i asked a top government gadhafi spokesman about that claim on the program last night. as you'll notice, he's n
, and they are stating "save us." they are begging us and pleading for us to save them, and my answer is two words -- listen to me, i want those armed groups to listen to me real well, and i want the people in the east to hear this, as well. we are coming. >> white house spokesman jay carney said the administration has already taken and i quote, swift and dramatic actions, and it has when it comes to freezing libyan assets. as to doing what they need urgently, namely a no-fly zone, nato is reviewing options. >> firstly, there must be a -- a -- a demonstratable need. secondly, there must be a clear legal basis. and thirdly, a strong reason or support. >> we'll talk tonight about that no-fly zon with general wesley clark and fouad ajami. first tonight, bill neely, the first reporter into zawia after it fell to gadhafi's forces. >> reporter: we were the first journalists to reach the town's center, driving past dozens of burned out cars and tanks. a quarter of a million people live in zawia, or they did. this is a ghost town. shops closed. houses empty. streets filled only with debris. >> and that wa
standing, seizures, trouble swallowing, and impaired judgment or motor skills. depression used to define me, then my doctor added abilify to my antidepressant. now, i feel better. [ male announcer ] if you're still struggling with depression talk to your doctor to see if the option of adding abilify is right for you. and be sure to ask about the free trial offer. >>> good evening, everyone. we begin with breaking news from libya. within the last hour, reports of a loud explosion heard in tripoli. reuters reporting residents say they saw smoke rising from a military base. we're going to take you live to tripoli in a few moments and talk to david kirkpatrick. it is 4:00 a.m. in libya. the early hours of the sixth day of coalition air strikes. this video taken a view hours ago. new rounds of tracer fire seen over tripoli. we got new pictures from the french military planes taking off from an aircraft carrier. the coalition flew 175 sorties over libya in the last 24 hours. officials now say that gadhafi's air power has been rendered ineffective and they've shifted to targeting gadhafi's ground
on that later in the hour. now libya, though. the top commander of the u.s. military operation in libya says nato has agreed in principle to not only take over the no-fly zone, but also the broader mission of protecting civilians. he said it's all going to happen very soon. here's what general carter hamm said today on "the situation room." >> we expect that nato will take over the no-fly zone this weekend, and then the next piece, the third and final piece, is the mission to protect civilians. nato, it's my understanding that nato has agreed to that in principle and will this command decide on the procedures and timing of accepting that mission. but i think that will probably occur in the very near future. >> ham also said that removing moammar gadhafi from power by military means is not the aim of the mission and the coalition isn't arming the opposition. but the coalition strikes on gadhafi's mechanism of power continue. authorities say coalition fighter planes took out seven libyan tanks in 24 hours. in fact, we got this video from the british ministry of defense showing british aircraft
. a battle that will have ripple effects on us all. moammar gadhafi faced reporters today and spun a story of what he says is happening in libya. it was a story. he says the people love him, his son says everything is peaceful. tonight you will hear their statements and then you will hear the facts of what is happening, you will hear facts and see evidence for yourselves, you will learn the truth from our reporters on the ground and the libyan people themselves trapped in their homes in many cases, but speaking out. no longer letting fear rule their lives. new video tonight, fighting taking place, about 130 miles to the east of tripoli where anti-government protesters are in control. listen to the fire. [ yelling ] [ gunfire ] >> you can see some of the tracer fire. heavy machine guns, aircraft guns. when aimed at human beings, it is devastating. also, 30 miles west of tripoli, this is the scene. the city of zawia also controlled by anti-government protesters tonight. but gadhafi's grip on tripoli remains tight. though his grip on reality does not. take a look at his newest interview, talk
out to the united states. senior u.s. officials tell cnn that a brother-in-law has been calling the state department almost every day. arab allies say they're also getting calls. we heard this talk yesterday from secretary of state clinton. it could be a sign that gadhafi's regime is looking for a way out. it could also be disinformation being put forward by the u.s. and others to make gadhafi not trust the people around him. in an interview, president obama said that gadhafi could wait it out, even though his forces have been weakened. today, secretary of state clinton said gadhafi and his inner circle have some choices to make. >> it will be up to gadhafi and his insiders to determine what their next steps are. but we would certainly encourage that they would make the right decision. not only institute a real comprehensive cease-fire, but withdraw from the cities and the military actions and prepare for a transition that does not include colonel gadhafi. the quickest way for him to end this is to actually serve the libyan people by leaving. >> gadhafi shows no sign that he's r
that it's al qaeda and drugged kits behind the opposition and he claims he's not using planes against libyans, only against ammunition depots. this for the oil port of brega, east of tripoli, seems to show otherwise. libyans battling gadhafi forces. and in a moment, we'll show you a bombing run against people by a jet caught on camera. so as you watch the videos tonight and watch the program tonight, ask yourself this, who do you believe, a dictator's words or your own eyes and ears? the dictator spoke at length today on state television. he denied yet again that anti-government demonstrations were happening and denies harming peaceful demonstrators. >> translator: there is no demonstration in benghazi. these groups came from underground and attacked these police stations and barracks. >> that's his explanation. no demonstrations of any kind. no libyans hurt. night after night, you've heard from residents telling a different story. we've shown you numerous videos of protesters being fired on. some have rocks and sticks. most appear unarmed. we've seen many dead bodies of libyans shot
country was right there with us, and all the wars we've had. is it better to do it peacefully? absolutely. >> you're a national guardsman. >> i'm a lieutenant colonel, 31 years. i'm a cog in the wheel and go where i'm told. >> you must talk to lots of guys while you're serving. >> i obviously participate in all the briefings. i've been to afghanistan. >> do many of them think the war in iraq was a good idea? >> in iraq? yes. absolutely. it's easier to try to figure out what would have been or could have been. but the fact that we did make the decision, your country and our country should be proud as to what our men and women did. >> it's been fascinating talking to you. >> that's it? >> that's it. you can come back when you're ready to announce you're running for president. how about that? >> okay, whatever. good to meet you. >> my pleasure. that's it for tonight. here's anderson cooper with "ac 360." >> piers, thank you very much. good evening, everyone. we begin tonight with breaking news. a new report tonight that libyan opposition leaders may ask for air strikes under u.n. security co
sanctions carried out by western air forces. the u.s. government went on record saying gadhafi has to go. tonight, the question is, will these opposition forces actually ask for outside help to make that happen? it appears right now there is something of a stalemate on the ground. tripoli still under gadhafi's control. we'll talk to a man hiding in his home who said he was stabbed by libyan police. he described the streets as frightingly quiet. benghazi is controlled by the opposition. the libyan government claim there is is no real uprising against gadhafi. they continue to claim a few dozen terrorists in each city are holding the populations hostage and claim they have never fired on libyan civilians. they say they've only killed foreigners attacking government forces. tonight, new video to show you to show that those government claims are false. this was taken sunday in tripoli, reportedly near the market. it appears to show protesters armed only with rocks and sticks being shot. [ gunfire ] >> to regroup and try to move forward. they start to use that truck as cover, moving forward t
to the northern quake zone and joins us now from near sendai, the city heavily damaged by the quake and tsunami. first off, describe the challenge of us of just trying to get to the disaster zone. >> reporter: well, the roads are completely blocked so one of the things that we've been looking for are the stories along the way as we try to make it up to the area that is hardest hit, that area hit by the tsunami, and we found one. this is a city called sirakawa and in this city there is a neighborhood where you can see some of the houses, it really does look like a small little community. you can see the three houses right here. what you can't see behind the three houses are eight houses. those eight houses, more than 24 hours ago, 25 hours ago when that earthquake struck, were completely buried by heavy land. there was a huge landslide, according to the people who live here. earth came sliding down and 25 hours later take a look over my right shoulder as we zoom in on what you're looking right there. heavy machinery digging. there are 13 people buried alive. there are children among the missing.
demonstrations. people in the city tell us that they are too afraid to go out canal. the first thing that comes to mind when you have four explosions that are regular and spaced apart is that this is not an accident. the first thing that comes to mind after that is this would be the opposition element trying to put some sort police are putting into place. it is still not clear from where we are. i think we really need to go r the opposition here in benghazi. but they have not come up with a solid single position, whether it's on the question of foreign intervention or the no-fly zone. just a few days ago, the city council of benghazi met to discuss the question of foreign involvement, possible military intervention in libya, and they voted almost unanimously against it. you do hear lots of individual libyans voicing support for some sort of strike against moammar gadhafi. one man said he would like to see a cruise missile launched on his palace. but there's no one single group speaking with one voice, making that kind of demand. perhaps individuals, but not as a single voice. >
revolution spreads and continues to spread through the middle east. that's all for us tonight. here's anderson cooper with "ac 360." >> thank you very much. another night of major new developments in libya and japan. new smoke today rising over reactors two and three. exact reasons unknown. radiation continues to leak, though exactly where from officials aren't sure. the spent fuel pool in reactor two has been a major problem with water boiling. they've been able to bring the temperature down. power lines to all six reactors have been reconnected. also, the fallout, the u.s. fda slapping a ban on importing produce and dairy products from any of the four prefectures nearest the reactors. and workers at the crippled nuclear plant are speaking out. >>> late new reports of coalition air strikes in the overnight hours near misurata. we're just getting this information in. details in a moment. also, secretary of state hillary clinton, moammar gadhafi, both speaking out tonight. what he's saying marches to the beat of a drummer only he seems to hear. what she's saying, if true, is a potent
scenario. that operation on the ground with the use of fire trucks and water cannons, that is still an operation. they are trying to cool those reactors with the use of water. and there are some 300 workers involved, normally inside the plant but outside. trying to contain this situation. we spoke to the prime minister's office this morning yeah said these men are certainly risking their lives. >> the nuclear disaster is one part of this crisis. let's talk about 1 week from 1 we first saw the devastating pictures and all the people lined up for petrol and food. what is the situation with the rescue efforts for people and people in shelters? >> i think the scale of this disaster continues to grow. the death toll stands at 7,000 and the toll of missing is in excess of 10,000. it is simply enormous. officials say it could grow more. the relief operation that is under way is involving some 82,000 military and police. this is certainly on an enormous scale. we are hearing reports that there are frustrations in that community because 16,000 people remain isolated. they are cut off. what t
swept away. according to the u.s. geological survey, that's hundreds of times stronger than the one that leveled port-au-prince. japan is maybe the best prepared country in the world for earthquakes, but nothing prepared anyone for this. >> at 2:46 p.m. local time, an 8.9 earthquake strikes off the east coast of japan. >> oh, my god. the building is going to fall! >> it's the most powerful earthquake recorded in the country's history. the fifth most powerful ever recorded in the world. its shockwave churns out walls of water up to 30 feet, traveling up to a mind boggling 500 miles an hour. a tsunami bears down on japan's coast in minutes. >> looks like that tsunami wave is moving upstream rapidly. and we're still seeing large tsunamis moving and hitting the area of sendai. that tsunami is going to hit the coastal areas, as we speak. we do not know the extent of the damage at this time, but obviously a huge tsunami. >> within just 30 minutes of the earthquake, the tsunami crashes ashore. >> homes are swallowed in an instant. water roars six miles inland, devouring everything in its p
it's the west coast, hawaii, alaska, or u.s. territories in the pacific. let me repeat that. we do not expect harmful levels of radiation to reach the west coast, hawaii, alaska, or u.s. territories in the pacific. >> he also said that americans living in japan should closely monitor the situation. of course, the u.s. government yesterday told any americans within 50 miles of the nuclear plant should get out of that area. now they are offering voluntary evacuations to the families of u.s. military and government personnel living here in japan. the u.s. also now has a especially designed plane to monitor radiation levels. they brought that into the region. that to try to independently at least get some raw data on what is going on exactly inside these plants, because the information they've been getting from the japanese government is not as clear and concise and as accurate as they would like. now, the other breaking story, libya, north africa. dramatic developments with the u.n. security council now approving a resolution that authorizing, as i said, not just a no-fly zone, but an
on in their homes. but now the u.s. government coming out today saying there should be a bigger zone, 50 miles for american citizens they were talking about, and also they were saying that the emergency secretary saying that the information that they have been receiving from -- that they have not been receiving enough information in a timely way about what is actually going on, that they don't have a clear enough picture of what is going on, on the ground. it seems that the information that the japanese government is using comes from this private company, which is running the operation, running the plant. i want to talk to the spokesman for japan's prime minister. he joins us now. i appreciate you being with us. what is in charge of this operation? >> well, we established a joint headquarters between the government and tokyo electric power company. >> what does that mean? where are you getting -- where are you getting your information? do you have officials on site? >> yes, we do. we have officials on site, as well as we have officials based in the headquarters of tokyo electric power company.
on in that plant? >> one, it tells you that we're in a very difficult -- i don't want to use the word desperate but very difficult situation. you know, if you're trying to drop water out of the air, and that's not even that much water, and if it hits the target, that it doesn't splash out. i also read tonight that they were aiming at reactor number three even more than reactor four. that tells me that -- it would seem to confirm what the enter ashl atomic agency said we have problems not only at reactor four with the waste pond, but growing problems at another reactor with their waste pond and that would be reactor three. and, you know, if you have to sort of lob it from the air, you're not -- this is not a good situation. >> we're expecting a press conference from the defense ministry any moment. we're going to monitor it for you. jim, one of the most frustrating things here, today we heard very dire explanations of what's going on. and frankly, some frank explanations from the u.s. government today. but it contrasts greatly to what we get out of these kind of press conferences from japanese o
been this way across the u.s. we know that the pattern will be wild through spring. we hope we'll settle down through summer right now. but there is a lot going on, on the globe. we'll have to have a whole show for that, piers. >> thank you both very much for that update on the weather. it's been a truly ghastly day in the history of japan and a terrible day for the world. if you want to help the people of japan in the wake of this disaster, text to red cross to 90999 and donate $10 to the american red cross. that will help those poor people tonight. that's all for us tonight. here's anderson cooper with "ac 360." >> piers, thank you very much. good evening, everyone. we'll have important and late developments in the battle of libya, including an attack on our team in tripoli. but we begin with the terrible devastation in northeastern japan. the destruction there simply epic. the death toll mounting. exact numbers unknown. now a nuclear emergency. several badly damaged power station reactors with serious cooling problems. pressure building. reports now of radiation venting at t
have been reconnected, though not turned on the cooling systems. also, the fallout, the u.s. fda slapping a ban on importing produce and dairy products from any of the four prefectures nearest the reactors. we'll tell you more details on that ahead. and workers at the crippled nuclear plant are speaking out. you'll hear from them later tonight. >>> but we begin with breaking news about libya. late new reports of coalition air strikes in the overnight hours near misurata. we're just getting this information in. details in a moment. also, secretary of state hillary clinton, moammar gadhafi, both speaking out tonight. what he's saying marches to the beat of a drummer only he seems to hear. what she's saying, if true, is a potential game changer. that he's looking for a way out. here she is on abc news. >> are you indicating somebody close to him on his behalf reaching out to say how do we get out? how does he get out? >> this is what we hear from so many sources, diane. it is a constant -- >> today? >> today, yesterday, the day before. some of it i'll be very -- this is my personal
for us tonight. and now here's "ac 360." >>> thanks, piers. i'm sanjay gupta. anderson will be back monday. we'll have the latest on libya in a moment. first, the chaotic and violent situation in syria, goes from bad to worse. government protesters under gunfire today. and a u.n. spokesman says at least 36 people have been killed in the city of dara, including two children. much more on that later in the hour. now libya, though. the top commander of the u.s. military operation in libya says nato has agreed in principle to not only take over the no-fly zone, but also the broader mission of protecting civilians. he said it's all going to happen very soon. here's what general carter hamm said today on "the situation room." >> we expect that nato will take over the no-fly zone this weekend, and then the next piece, the third and final piece, is the mission to protect civilians. nato, it's my understanding that nato has agreed to that in principle and will this command decide on the procedures and timing of accepting that mission. but i think that will probably occur in the very near fut

areas, you need to move and you need to move quickly and get to higher ground. i've got matt talk us to us from he can to yoefl he was there when the earthquake hit. now an 8.9 magnitude quake. tell us about the situation. for you, when this magnitude 8.9 hit. >> it was absolutely unlike anything i've ever experienced before. i've been living here eight years now. this was quite simfully biggest, longest lasting earthquake i've ever experienced here. >> that's it. our reporter there was saying she thought it was four to five minutes. was that your sense as well? >> the ground was rolling for an extended period of time. my wife and i stood outside and basically held on to the outside of our house. you couldn't even stand up. at the peak of these waves that were washing over the ground, you literally could not stay on your feet. you have to crouch down in a ball or put your back against something so you didn't fall. that's exactly what we did for the length, the duration of it. it was probably two minutes and felt like it was a lot longer. >> are you saying that you live there? you're
and killing his own people, again, using deadly force on the streets of tripoli and the city of zawia and tracking down on reporters who aren't cooperating, taking away their cameras trying to blind the world to what is happening. this newly uploaded cell phone video is reportedly from zawia. we cannot independently verify that. we do know from numerous reports that government forces, which surrounded the city, moved in hard on protesters who are armed with sticks and rocks and in some cases, guns. gadhafi forces were said to have used mortar and machine gun fire. watch. [ gunfire ] again, we cannot independently verify exactly when this video was taken. one witness we spoke with said what happened was indescribable. a local doctor reporting 15 dead and upwards of 200 wounded. there's a river of blood, he says, running through his hospital. the regime saying they have recaptured the city. the exact word they used was liberated. which, again, we cannot confirm. according to the gadhafi regime, the libyan people are all behind him. but are being held hostage by a small number of al qaed
it, because i'm explaining to people what's happening, you watch us build it, you watch us fly in the people and watch this message delivered. it's so scary, so much fun, so great. >> it sounds fun, and i will be back doing auditions with you on america's got talent in the next few weeks. do a quick fist -- >> i'm not touching your water. i know we're on the air. i'd like to be banned now. >> he'll be back. that's it for us tonight and the end of howie mandel's career. >>> piers, thanks. the battle for libya is sin tense phiing, as america considers military action in that country. moammar gadhafi continues to claim victories that do not exist. gadhafi's latest claims, versus the facts on the ground. gadhafi claims they've taken this city of mizrada. you're going to hear from a man who's pinned down there. the small arms and molotov cocktails. they have nothing to fight with, he says, and nothing left to lose. the man you are going to hear from tonight says he's preparing to die. preparing for another fight like the one they had this weekend. [ gunfire ] >> gadhafi continues to
